    leap frog the jets and the rams. Jets, Rams, Falcons , Chiefs all need Oline help and there is only 2 good offensive line men and they go real early, so you better board the patriots train.

    RT and LT are not positions to be over looked. If you say no teams would trade up to draft a RT, then why does the mock draft have 2 Oline guys drafing in the top 5?

    Even if the chiefs leap frog a few spots no big deal, they give the pats a 2009 3rd round.

    I'm not sold on Long as most. Me being a Rams fan, the player I'm starting to like is for us is Vernon Gholston DE/LB Ohio State. If we can't get Gholston and Long is still there, trade down. I'd take my chances in round 3 by drafting Heath Benedict OT Newberry.

    After watching Huard and Croyle play this season, I think KC needs to look at QB.

    What if Baltimore traded us Suggs for #2, they could take Long as Odgen will likely retire.

    Suggs is an UFA, if they Franchise him they could trade him to the Pats (assuming a long term deal could be worked out). Suggs would actually be less than the #2 overall draft pick and we would have a stud OLB/DE in his prime for the next 5 years. I believe that he is only 25 right now.

    Who is Jeff Oher? Do you mean MICHAEL OHER? A guy who is probably staying in school? Same with Clady.

    How do you figure that OTAH is a better prospect than LONG? Otah has all of 5 years experience in his playing career...

    Why do you think Oher is staying in school? Have you seen something written that says he is leaning on returning to school?
